Can't tell a snowy egret from a snowy plover? Over one million birds make their way through San Francisco Bay as they migrate south for the winter, and Oakland's beautiful Middle Harbor Shoreline Park is a perfect place to learn about them! 

Join us for an easy two mile walk along this restored habitat and learn how to spot and identify our native shorebirds in a welcoming and easy environment. Bring your own binoculars or share one of ours. We'll also have a spotting scope!

Ages 12 and up. $15 per person, tickets must be purchased at EventBrite. All proceeds will go toward supporting the California Center for Natural History.
